The Babes and Boys are back on Beatniks stage with their Christmas Show.

We are accustomed to having a play tell us a single long story, sometimes with substories that are related to the main narrative. Almost, Maine doesn’t work like that. Instead, it is composed of eight vignettes, each no more than fifteen minutes, plus a prologue, an “interlogue,” and an epilogue—which are even briefer than the vignettes.

Seven of the vignettes feature two characters, none of whom ever appears again in any of the other scenes. One vignette has three characters, but we never see any of them again either. The same two characters do appear in the prologue and epilogue, and one of them shows up in the interlogue—but neither is in any of the vignettes. Thus, in eleven short scenes we are introduced to nineteen characters, with each of whom we spend only a few minutes.

The reason we never see the same character appearing more than once is that all these vignettes are taking place at the same time in our small town: “Everything takes place at nine o’clock on a Friday night in the middle of winter.”
One way or another, at nine o’clock on this particular winter Friday in Almost, Maine, the drama of love is being played out in its many variations.

Cost is $15 – cash only. Beatniks on Conkey is located
2 blocks east of Hohman Ave., downtown Hammond.   For reservations, Call 219-852-0848.
